We've arrive at Friday evening once again, but before we dive into the weekend, here's the big Android news from the day. Today Motorola Atrix HD users received their long-awaited Jelly Bean update, as did Galaxy S III users on Verizon, so overall it was a pretty good day for those craving Jelly Bean. Speaking of Jelly Bean, Acer might be planning a new handset called the V360 running Google's latest version of the Android OS, and today we spotted an absurdly large 8.5-inch phone from Huawei.

US Cellular has finally updated the Galaxy S II with Ice Cream Sandwich, and according to UK retailer Carphone Warehouse, the Sony Xperia E handset will be launching in February 2013. We had a whopper of a rumor with the Xiaomi M3, which is said to have a 1080p screen, a Tegra 4 processor, and 2.5GB of RAM, while Box.net for Android increased its file size limit to 250MB. We saw an unboxing of an official Nexus 7 dock from ASUS today, along with an FCC listing for the HTC One SV.

The very cool Samsung Galaxy Camera arrived at Verizon today, with the carrier kicking off its holiday sale that features plenty of deals on Android phones. Rovio has kicked off a winter sale of its own, offering the HD versions of many of its games for a one measly dollar each. Google+ for Android got a new update today as well, so be sure to give that a look if you use the social network from your handset.

We caught a glimpse of a magnetic Pogo charger for the Nexus 10, while new Sony Yuga rumors mention a whopping 128GB of storage. The Comcast Xfinity TV player app can now download content offline, while Galaxy S III users on AT&T and T-Mobile have been given an unofficial CyanogenMod 10.1 release. EE said it will soon be offering the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE in the UK, and finally tonight, T-Mobile says that it should have more Nexus 4s in stock soon. That does it for this edition of Android Community Nightly, we hope you enjoy the weekend!
